The first prompt was:
Journal prompt: Choose one word to sum up this past year. Write it, stamp it, type it boldy. Add no explanation, your word will speak for itself.
I used a photo from Frankie Magazine and my word was HARD. 2014 was hard – emotionally, physically, financially and professionally. It has been hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel – and I don’t think it’s going to get any clearer this year. But having said all of that – I am grateful for my family, friends and colleagues that help make things easier. The Get Messy Art Journalling group has given me an outlet to journal away my troubles. And for that I am grateful.
